Remote working is one of the key workplace trends to watch as more companies open up to the benefits of expanding their horizons when it comes to talent seeking. Research finds that remote work will equal, if not surpass, traditional fixed office positions by 2025.
FlexJobs, which lists flexible job opportunities across 50 industries, recognized that several of fast growing occupations will offer a remote, flexible or part-time schedule.
“We strongly believe that remote work will continue to grow as a primary workplace trend in 2020,” said Sara Sutton, founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “Telecommuting clearly has evolved beyond the ‘perk’ stage into a global phenomenon, and the 2020s will see organizations focusing on issues related to this development, such as well-crafted work-from-home policies and better security for shared information.”
The top five jobs that are expected to have the highest growth in 2020 that come with flexible work options are home health aides, information security analysts, physician assistants, statisticians and nurse practitioners.
